I am up early this morning, preparing to squeeze a fishing expedition in between the sunrise and promised rain. The picture is what greeted me…..a gift from the Master. I trust he won’t mind my tinting it blue from the beautiful red that suggests that “red skies at morn, sailors be warned”.

To say thank you isn’t much, but today it is all I have…..with a couple of pictures for emphasis.
